Glow Recipe's range of buzzy watermelon-based skincare products has a new addition. The K-beauty brand is a hit among TikTok users, beauty editors, and celebrities alike, earning fans with its formulations impressive results. In fact, one of its debut launches came with a list of over one thousand people. The TikTok masses haven't yet swarmed to the new Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay Pore-Tight Facial Mask, but based on the reviews of Sephora shoppers, this is one goodie that skincare fans shouldn't sleep on.

Continually included in products across the Glow Recipe's range, watermelon acts as a major hydrator for the skin. "Watermelon helps to moisturize and soothe the skin," dermatologist Marisa Garshick told InStyle. "It also can deliver vitamins and amino acids helping to support the [health of the] skin. Additionally, watermelon contains malic acid which gently exfoliates to get rid of dead skin cells. Malic acid also serves as a humectant, helping to draw moisture in."

In the case of the new clay mask, this featured fruit ingredient is combined with lactic acid and glycolic acid. "These two alpha-hydroxy acids are phenomenal skincare ingredients," Charles Puza, dermatology resident at UT Southwestern, told InStyle, "and are likely the major reason behind the glow."

The mask, which can be used as part of a daily skincare routine, should be worn for up to five minutes before removal. Based on the experience of reviewers, that brief window of time is all that's needed for results. "In only five minutes, my skin was left feeling so soft and clean. I definitely felt like it cleared out all my pores, but without leaving my skin stripped of moisture," one shopper shared.

Another shopper just had to share their positive experience, writing, "I don't usually write reviews but I'm so blown away by using this product just once. I left it on for five minutes and, after washing it off, my pores are non-existent and my skin is glowing and firm." Others wrote of noticing a swift reduction in hormonal acne and softer skin. "My skin has been flawless since using this mask."

Don't be surprised if the benefits of this mask extend to your makeup application, too. "My skin was like glass! My pores disappeared and the skin was so tightened that it looked and felt like [that of] a mannequin. Makeup sits perfectly on your skin for [each application] a few days after," a Sephora customer wrote.

Kick congested pores to the curb and achieve softer, glass-like skin by picking up a jar of the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Hyaluronic Clay mask for yourself from Sephora.
